Bane and Catwoman Announced as Next Batman Villains



It looks like the rumors were true. Catwoman is the villain for The Dark Knight Rises, the third installment in Christopher Nolan’s Batman franchise. Who will play Selina Kyle? None other than Anne Hathaway, mostly known for fillms such as The Devil Wears Prada, Alice in Wonderland and Get Smart.

Joining her in the cast will be Tom Hardy as Bane. Tom Hardy has played a muscular criminal before in the prison movie Bronson and was also last seen in this past summer’s blockbuster Inception.

Interesting casting choices as well as character choices from Nolan. It will be interesting to see what he does with these two characters.
